    It's not that I hate them. I wanna shake them and say "Are you @%^$#%$&# kidding me?!?" There are a lot of debates where each side has a legitimate point but I've yet to speak with an anti-gun nut who actually has a factual basis for any of their opinions. After all the crime statistics have been thrown back and forth and they realize there's no basis for the media's claims they always resort to "Well I just don't like them." My response? "I don't like liberals, should they be illegal?"

    Pretty easy to "parrot' most of what others have said. I detest the IGNORANCE of the anti-gun people. But, mostly I resent the fact that they seem to think there is any connection between my owning legally used firearms and violent gun crime. There is no connection in this universe between the two.

    Anti-gun people always fall back on the same ole tired "Guns were made to kill" comment. WELL DUH, of course they were made to kill. Killing has been a very useful and necessary skill to have over the course of human history. We wouldn't be where we are today without that skill. Why do criminals use guns? Because the gun works very well for killing, and that generates fear and subservience...

    But it's the IGNORANCE of that anti-gun crowd, of the fact that guns don't always have to be used just for killing that should be changed. I can get just as much pleasure I'm sure spending a day at the shooting range (not killing anything) as someone else could get spending a day playing a round of Golf. I wish the media would stop demonizing the gun, and just stick to the person using it for a change. It's not the Anti Gun persons fault sometimes, they just hear that guns are bad their entire life. I've seen several change their minds with just a day at a shooting range. It's fear of the gun that drives their hate.

    But, I will say this and it has surprised me... With the latest round of high profile murder suicide stuff in the news, even some of my most anti-gun friends have finally begun to understand that MORE LAWS are not the answer to violent gun crimes, and that criminals will still have guns no matter how illegal it may be. I think in some strange way that with some places having such strict gun laws, yet still having the same, or higher crime rates, the idea of everyone giving up the guns and living in a utopia is beginning to fade away somewhat. I guess they had to see it fail, before they would believe it could fail... We can only hope so anyway.

    Another thing... In the wake of the most recent news story where the football jock murdered his girlfriend and child, I will submit a speculative theory. A black pro football jock- Hummm ....I would have to ask if he was even LEGALLY ALLOWED to own or possess a firearm. Statistically many aren't. If not why would more laws make any difference ?

    All of the above; and I'm pretty good with them all. :D

    The "anti's" as well as the Democrats all have faulty logic on whatever gains their attention. They figure if they bitch loud enough and long enough, their point of view will be taken as fact, just like the mainstreaming campaign of aborrant behavior.

    Because they want to make me a criminal, or see me killed but they don't have the gonads to do it themselves. They want to be little panty waist B------ and let the Grub-er-in-mint do it. Other than that I feel sorry for them because they are truly mentally-ill and they should not have the right to self defense or Grub-er-in-mint police protection. I would be willing to bet money that they, for the most part would be willing for the Grub-er-in-mint armed agents to kill you or me with their firearms if it advances their twisted agenda.:mad::confused::mad::bleh::bleh::rolleyes:

    "Faulty logic" is dead on in terminology.
    For example, guns are bad and kill, but a murderer/rapist must not be put to death because it's inhuman.
    Makes no sense, imprison such a person when there is no way to ever trust them again, and take away an inanimate object based on it's apparent ability to cause evil.
    This is my problem with anti's, emotional nonsense masquerading as logic or compassion.

    I don't really dislike them. In fact, I actually feel sorry for them.
    They are a product of their own education. They do not have the ability to find out the facts on their own.
    All they know to do is follow their leader.

    People's opinions are changed by personal experience---not by someone trying to verbally convince them.

    I was raised with guns but married into a family that was anti-gun.

    After years of hearing how guns are only made to kill people and how the world would be better off without them, my stepdaughter's son got old enough to start wanting to go hunting. The mom wanted me to "teach him about gun safety" which I did.

    Then later she began having trouble with her ex-husband and feared he was about to do them harm. She and my wife implored me to go over with a gun and protect her, which I did.

    Now when we get in the car my wife sometimes asks me if I am packing (I am), and she says, "Good!"

    They have come to understand that guns are like a lug wrench and spare tire in the trunk---there in case you need them.

    The opposite can happen, too. A guy in town had guns and one of his little boys shot another of his little boys in the head with a .44 magnum. He got rid of all his guns (too late).

    But only personal experience will change someone's mind.

    I have avoided this thread because it raises my blood pressure, but here I go.

    Anti-gunners suck!!!! They are the ones that voted for obama. They are the ones that make it possable to have anti gun laws made. They are the ones that will roll over in times of trouble and give their freedoms up. They are the spineless ones that become brainwashed. They are why crime rates are high. They are why I am looked down on for being a gun owner. There was a time when going into a gun shop was the norm and porn shops were looked down on. Now it's a crime to have a gun shop in certain areas of cities and towns and porn shops are the norm. They are the reasons that prisons provide better meals then I eat, and they are the reason the inmates have TV's and internet. They are the reason that we have welfare out of control in our country. They are the reason we can't spank our kids. They are the reason I am losing my liberties of freedom of speaking the name of Jesus Christ in public.

    Anti gunners stand for everything that I don't believe in. The last time I checked I love my brothers but these people are not my brothers. In this country we are brainwashed to not use the word hate.

    I hate everything they stand for. I can't stand any one of them!!!
